Changelog for Vanced Manager

v2.6.2 Custom Servers (CS)

Since Vanced was discontinued and Google asked them to shut down their project, I built a vanced manager based on their GitHub source.

In case the vanced manager’s official server shuts down or the official one has a slow download speed.

This one has an alternative server host with full languages, themes, and older versions.

Vanced Manager is open source:

While YouTube Vanced and Youtube Music Vanced are not open sources

  • New Servers Added to download unmodified Vanced apps
  • No other changes to the original 2.6.2
  • Ayra’s Project Telegram channel link added
  • Donate to Ayra for his work.
